From the six-shooters of the Old West's outlaws to the weapons used by assassins, this is a dramatic look at the guns that changed history.
There are guns that have earned a place in history for their innovations--breakthrough weapons that advanced the science of firearms.

INFAMOUS GUNS is a dramatic look at the guns that fired bullets that changed the course of history. Explore the stories of the weapons used by the gunmen who killed Kennedy, Lincoln, McKinley and Garfield.
